aswekeepsearching are a truly unique proposition - there are no groups quite like the quartet, who combine Hindi-language singing and traditional Indian instruments and soundscapes with ethereal, cathartic post-rock. 

Following the much lauded “Zia” (2017), aswekeepsearching have created another breathtakingly beautiful release in “Rooh”. Entirely cinematic in scope and all-encompassing in ambition, “Rooh” is an album that further cements aswekeepsearching’s position as one of the finest contemporary rock bands.

Following the release of “Zia” the band toured Europe for the second time, a 15-date run with Tides Of Man, which included acclaimed sets at dunk! Festival (Belgium) and Pelagic Fest (Germany). aswekeepsearching have also previously played alongside God Is An Astronaut, Steven Wilson, Plini, 65daysofstatic, as well as performing at every major festival in India, including NH7 Weekender and VH1 Supersonic. aswekeepsearching are currently celebrating “Rooh” with an album listening tour across the country, having also become the first band in the country to launch a fashion label.

“Rooh” is, in fact, a loose concept album centred on the idea of growth, a depiction of the band’s journey so far, depicted in track titles “A Night in Zottegem” and “Gangtey”, but also “Eneke Najaaba”, which describes the emotion of bidding goodbye to the sun as it sets.

aswekeepsearching have also seen change in personnel, with drummer Gautam Deb departing to be replaced by longtime friend & collaborator Sambit Chatterjee, who played Tabla on their previous album. “Rooh” is mixed and mastered by legend Forrester Savell, and self-produced by the band.
